The Mirror reckon that the Hammers are lining up a move to sign Solanke as a replacement for the Italian, and have made an enquiry for the Bournemouth forward.

There are so many better options out there for West Ham this summer, and in all honesty, West Ham would have been far better off just keeping Gianluca Scamacca.
